What Is the Frax 1550?

The Frax 1550 is a fractional laser used to resurface and rejuvenate the skin. It is the Nordlys-powered alternative to the popular Fraxel device.

The infrared laser energy emitted by Frax 1550 targets the water in your surface skin cells, vaporizing them. Fractional laser treatments are non-ablative. That’s because the laser beam is fractionated, or broken up into tiny fractions, which target only 25% to 40% of the skin, hastening your recovery time. The Norlys system is a foundational platform for an array of light-based treatments, most notably, Frax 1550. The Frax device has a range of utility.

How Do Light-based Skincare Treatments Work?

The science of optics lies at the heart of light-based therapies. What we perceive as color is simply different wavelengths of electromagnetic energy reacting to the world around us. Light-based skincare instruments (Frax 1550) leverage the science of optics to achieve their results.

Each instrument emits unique wavelengths at particular intensities that react differently to the various pigments in our skin. Thusly, each instrument can precisely target different dermatological features—rosy-red rosacea, for instance—all while leaving the surrounding tissue largely unharmed.

Benefits of Frax 1550 treatment

When we examine the benefits of Frax 1550, it is helpful to think of water flowing from a hose. Frax 1550 laser treatments are like a narrow stream of water: tight, targeted and powerful.
